Trout Angling in Carmarthen Reservoir
Trout Angling in Carmar- then Reservoir. PROPOSAL DISCUSSED BY COUNCIL. A meeting of the Carmarthen Town Council was held at the Council Chamber on Wednes- day. The Mayor (Mr John Lewis) presided; and there were also present: Dr Gibbon, Rev A. F. Mills, and Messrs J. B. Arthur. Thos. Williams, J. Jenkins, H. S. Holmes, Walter Spurrell, David Williams, W. Dunn Williams, Oliver Jones, J. Grossman, E. Collier, D. J. Davies. A discussion on the subject of fishing in the Reservoir was started by a statement made by the Mayor that a gentleman had offered zC12 10s a year for the right of fishing for 25 persons in the Cwmtawel reservoir. Some very good trout had been seen there. He had also offered a few pounds for the few re- maining weeks of the present season. Mr J. Crossman said that this would be bound to lead to a certain amount of pollution. The Medical Officer (Dr Bowen Jones) said that he would not like to see many people going there. Mr Spurrell moved that they accept the offer to let the fishing for E12 10s to 25 persons for a year. Mr J. B. Arthur moved that the applicant get the fishing for the remainder of the present season for JE2 10s. Mr Crossman: Is it worth while to run the risk for f:2 or L3. Mr D. J. Davies said that there was a dan- ger that if anglers did not succeed with the fly they would try with the worm. Mr Oliver Jones said that he did not think there was any danger of pollution; fishing was allowed in the Birmingham reservoirs. Rev A. F. Mills moved, and Mr T. Williams seconded that the fishing be not let this year. This was agreed to. HORSlE FUNERALS. A discussion again arose over the question of the burial of horses at the rubbish tip. The Mayor Who is to see that they are pro- perly buried? The Inspector said that it was the duty of the man who was employed there. Mr David Williams asked what was the good of having officials to look after these matters if they did not do so. Dr Bowen Jones I don't think Mr Williams knows what he is talking about. He seems to think that lie knows everything. We had better have him to look after the whole affairs of the town. Mr David Williams: I am here to see that the health of the Town is properly looked after. The Inspector said that he had granted per- mission for one horse to be buried but two were buried. Mr Williams said that the carcases ought to be buried in lime two feet at least below the Dr Jones said that there was nothing more sanitary than earth burial, and that not too deep. When ca-reases were buried very deep they kept longer. Rev A. F. Mills gave notice of motion on the subject for the next meeting.

A letter was received from Llanwrwda com- plaining of the state of the road in the village which was stated to be covered with dust. Mr Mervyn Peel suggested that this road should be tarred. Mr T.

Irishmen in Munition Factories
Irishmen in Munition Factories. DRASTIC ACTION BY THE BOROUGH TRIBUNAL. IF At Carmarthen Borough Tribunal on Wed- nesday, the members present were The Mayor (Mr John Lewis), Mr W. V. H. Thomas, Mr John Davies, and Mr H. S. Holmes. There was a long list of appeals by married men. The Mayor said "We have gone thoroughly into the matter of dealing with the married men and have unanimously come to the con- clusion that we are not prepared to deal with these cases at present, and have therefore decided for the present to postpone all the cases of married men. The reason for decid- ing in this manner is that we are of opinion that the single men should go first and that all the Irishmen now employed in munition works and factories should be asked to join the Army or go back to Ireland." This announcement was received with loud applause. Capt. Margrave (the Recruiting Officer): 1 quite agree. I think it is very hard that a man working in a munition factory should be taunted by another man not subject to the Military Service with the remark "I'M be on this job when you are lying dead on the fields of France." Mr Harries, Towy Works, had an appeal in respect of an employee, aged 19, and Mr Lewis Jones, painter, St. Catherine street, in respect of his son. aged 18 years and 5 months. Both appeals were dismissed. Mr H. S. Holmes said that they had decided to grant no exemptions for Classes A and Bl., that is men passed as fit for general service or for garrison duty abroad). Appellants could appeal to the County Tribunal against this decision.
Whitland Assault Case
Whitland Assault Case. HORSE TRANSACTION ALTERCATION.. Before Judge Lloyd Morgan and a jury at the Narborth County Court on Monday, Edward Ormond, haulier, of Deer Park, Tenby sued George Llewellyn, farmer, of Brownslade near Whitland, for £100 damage for assault, F Mr St. John Francis Williams (instructed by Messrs Stokes and Stokes, Tenby) appeared for plaintiff, and Mr Marlay Samson (instruc- ] ted by Messrs Lascelles and1 Lewis, Narberth) defended. Plaintiff's case was that in April last he bought a horse from defendant for £16, pay- ing jE4 on account. That horse turned out useless, and plaintiff liad to sell it for lOt; AS food for a pack of hounds. As he sti:ll required a horse, plaintiff on June 2nd visited Nar- berth Fair, but failed to see a horse that would suit him, so he went to Whitland en route for defendant's farm. He met defendant in the M hitland Arms and offered to buy defendant's black mare for £ 22, money down. A bargain was struck, and plaintiff began to count out the sum in dEl notes. When 14 of these had been counted, defendant pickd them up and left the house. Plaintiff went in search of him. and tracing him to the Plume of Feathers at the village of Taveirnspite, asked him to have the black mare or the tl4 returned TO bizii. After leaving the Plume of Feathers an altercation ensued, and defendant assaulted him, with the result that he was connned to bed for one week and was off work altogether seven weeks. The defence was that the plaintiff was th I aggressor. Plaintiff had previously bought from defendant horses which turned out well, and he cleared C16 upon one of them, which he sold to the Government. When the tl4 was counted out on the table, defendant accepted it in settlement of the debt due, and made a remark to that effect. There was no bargain struck as to the black mare; he would take her out of the field. Plaintiff finally lost his temper and struck defendant, and after scuffle on the ground they fought. Defendant only struck in self-defence. The jury found for plaintiff for 1:30, and His Honour entered judgment for that amount with costs. -_on_-

A Llanelly Sapper
A Llanelly Sapper. TERRIBLE ORDEAlTlN "KO MAN'S LAND. Sapper Llewelyn Bassett, son of Mr and Mrs David Bassett, 30, Gilbert-place. ~Llanelly who is at the Southport Hospital, having been wounded for the second time, gives a thrilling story of his experience during tli "big push-ps "I had." he says, ''A wonderful escape from death, and I can thank the Almighty for JAF deliverance. I was up at the front position eight days before I was hit, and during that time we had been 'over the top' three tilnes trying to take the German trenches. We made a fourth attempt, and this time we took the position and held it. The same night 1 w,as sent out to mark a new sap in the front line, and in the vicinity of which the raid was made.. It was moonlight, and we culd SEE plainly for a good distance. A risky job it was under such circumstances, but the job had to be done. I went on top and was running when the enemy spotted us and turned his machine-gun upon us. I was hit in the leg and fell like a log and took cover in a shell- hole. My comrades in the party ran back into a sap until things got quiet. There I was, left in 'No Man's Land,' between the lines. [ dare not move, as if I made the slightest movement I should have been spotted again and possibly riddled with bullets. Two hours elapsed and then the Germans began to strafe our front line, and the strafing was something cruel close to where I lay. I was soon on- veloped in smoke emitted from the bursting shells, and the smell of powder become suffo- cating. It was a terrible ordeal. "One shell bust within five vards of me. The concussion deafened me, AND I do not know how I saved from shell shock. It was NOW getting too hot for me, and, crippled though I was, I made up my mind to make a supreme effort to reach the sap under cover of the smoke. Miraculously, I got to the gap all right, and I was helped by my comrades-in- arms down to the first-aid post." j k.
